I figure that it has been awhile so I deserve to whine. Actually “wine” sounds a lot better but it might also make me whine more. So what is my problem? Diabetes of course! It won’t let me be sick or healthy.
How does that work? Simple. Larry has been telling me for days that I cannot escape his hacking, coughing, sniffly, keeping me awake at night germs. The poor man has been dying with a cold that comes and goes only to rear its head every time we want to sleep. He has medicated himself with both home remedies and good old Benelyn.
Despite my best efforts and a daily does of hot apple cider vinegar, I can feel my throat getting scratchy, my eyes are dry and my chest is heavy. I am normally very aggressive when this sort of thing happens. Its the aforementioned hot apple cider vinegar during the day and one good dose of Neo-citron at night.
Obviously I have occasionally been sick in the years since Diabetes moved into our house. I have been lucky though in that I have never really been drag down, let me lay here and die sick in years. I am nowhere near that sick right now but I would love to do my usual cold butt kick routine and have it done with. Diabetes won’t allow that tonight.
Why? Well you see the problem is that Diabetes is behaving. My son’s nighttime numbers have been incredibly good. He is staying around 6 (108) all night long–well as all night as my testing shows. One might think that this is a good thing and I should easily be able to medicate myself without worry. Wrong!
So, time to grab the wine or perhaps just some herbal tea and aspirin and hope to ward off the germs flying around our house for just one more night.
